IMPACT 7: Intersections & Counterpoints
International Multi-disciplinary Printmaking Conference

27-30 September 2011
Melbourne, Australia

Printmaking | Photography | Graphic Design | Drawing | The Artist’s Book | Text | Animation | Film and Digital Media

Call for Papers and Proposals

IMPACT, the world’s leading event for contemporary print culture, will head south of the equator in 2011, to be hosted by the Faculty of Art & Design, Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.

IMPACT 7: Intersections & Counterpoints will focus on the multiple identity of the print, exploring the cross-disciplinary nature of printmedia internationally and in the context of the Asia-Pacific region. Printmedia will be explored as a heterogeneous, diverse and all pervading aspect of contemporary culture. Often located at the intersections of disciplines and media, it is also a powerful political vehicle, generating discourse and debate by virtue of its wide dissemination and ability to offer counterpoints to the norm.

The conference addresses practitioners, writers, critics, artists, theorists, and others working in the broad fields of print-related research. It aims to provide a platform in which practitioners and researchers can engage in a mutually productive exchange. Media identified by the conference will include but not be limited to: printmaking, photography, graphic design, drawing, the artist’s book, text, animation, and film and digital media.

IMPACT 7: Intersections & Counterpoints will reflect on the activities of an international community of artists, writers and designers. The conference will bring indigenous, migrant, and regional voices to the fore, with a focus on cultural diversity, creative collaboration, the artists’ book, and communication in digital networks.

Monash University invites artists, curators, print studios, writers, academics, collectors, students and industry to participate in IMPACT 7: Intersections & Counterpoints. The conference will include themed refereed sessions, poster presentations, exhibitions across Melbourne in major public and private venues, open portfolios, workshops and demonstrations.

Papers are invited on any aspect of the conference theme. Topics include but are not limited to:
- printmedia and political agency, activism, appropriation and sub-culture
- print and the influence of digital technologies and new media
- the history and theory of the print, printmedia and printmaking
- trace, document, index

Dear friends, In April, my plan is to launch The Australian Book Arts Journal for book artists, printmakers, calligraphers and writers! The theme for the first issue is Beginnings. If you have any article or story that you think might make an impact, a review of a book, a review with pics of an exhibition, a technique article or tutorial with images, please contact me at the journal is exclusively Australian content. There are sections for advertising your workshop, exhibition, conference and equipment. I am most excited about publishing this quarterly journal and hope you will see it as a vehicle for your work - besides, there is nothing like a book in the hand!
